The new icons for the select tool *are* relevant in that the select tools
are now different, and as a result, the icons reflect this. (At least in my
version) the drop down does work, you just need to click and hold for a
second or two for the additional options to pop up. You will see that the
original select tool icon is used to represent the original select tool
functionality, and there are several new select tools each with a specific
icon so that you know what you're doing when you're doing it.
